See you soon, Dan...

Over the weekend we got to see our friend Dan one last time before he daparts for Iraq. He was on leave this weekend and we met up a couple of times. Dan married one of my dearest friends Jennifer (above) back in November, and we've gotten to know him quite well over the months. When Joel, Dan and Austin get together it's T-R-O-U-B-L-E! Best of luck to you, Dan, and we look forward to seeing you next winter!

Happy Birthday Dan and Tom!

Dan and Tom turned 28 on Friday, and we had a fabulous family dinner. The b-day boys had King Crab Legs (as you can see...they were HUGE!), and we all enjoyed each others company. Maddie helped pass out their presents (as you can see in the pic w/ Austin), while Gracie twirled around and around until she collapsed! The girls wanted a bath, so Kellie and I ended the night giving them a bubble bath. Happy birthday to the two best brothers in the world! :)

Too Small T-Shirts

Tehehe...Austin and I got these shirts for the boys last time we went to Key West, which was a couple years ago, and yesterday we put them on the boys and they were WAYYYYYYYYYY too tight! We got quite a laugh out of this look...the look of having gained a few!

Cannot wait...three weeks until we leave cold and cloudy Michigan for warm and sunny Gulf Shores, Alabama!! God, if there is any way you can warp speed the next three weeks, feel free! :) Here's a pic of us from last year (look at the beach behind us!)

District Champs!

So, I am a little late posting this, but the Rams are this season's District Champs! They beat Greenville on Friday night 60-45. Brogan had yet another great game, as did the rest of the team! Tonight is a HUGE game against Jenison to see how much farther they'll go. GO RAMS!!

P.S. Brogan is #3 :)
